"Great flavor! I split the peppers between green & red. I will use a little more flour next time to thicken sauce. Served over whole wheat egg noodles."

"Old Fashioned Swiss Steak

This is excellent. My family loves this dish and thinks the sauce it makes is one of the best they have tasted. I will make this recipe over and over.
